YUM!!! I'm going to have to try those recipes!!!!!<br><br>
I'm going grocery shopping today so I can get the ingred. I think my kids will really like Chowder.<br>
I made pumpkin choc. chip cookies last week, they were good but not too healthy.
That chowder does look good-Since finding out I am pg i have not had an ounce of energy to cook anything adventurous and I feel so guilty <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br>
I did make a nice stir fry in my new wok over the weekend with some brown rice, yellow squash, tofu, grn pepper, snap peas and carrots though. It was really yum!<br>
I have never done baked squash and I really want to try it! Looking for some good resipes/ how to's. Thanks!
Got La Dolce Vegan in the mail a few weeks ago and can't wait to start cooking from it. I've got Vegan with a Vengeance coming my way, I'm going to be a cooking machine. Hoping to have lots of good things to make for mil, she'll be here next week.
We also have the La Dolce Vegan cookbook and we made the coconut curry veggies and it came out delicious!<br><br>
One thing, though, I would add pre-cooked rice to the pot. Ours didn't fully cook because there wasn't enough liquid. Hubby cooked it as long as he could but the rice never cooked through. It would be much simpler to just add a cup or two of cooked rice to the pot. But so so so tasty! i can't wait to have it again.
I'm going to make the Curried Coconut squash stew tonight. I'm feeling a little under the weather and it sounds gooood!<br><br>
I would also love more winter squash recipes, tried and true kid pleasers!!
I love soup season!<br><br>
Have any of you tried the little organic alphabet noodles put out by Eden Foods? My kids totally love them. I add them to vegetable/bean soup and my girls just can't eat enough of it.<br><br>
Does anyone have a recipe for a stew that's cooked inside a pumpkin? I had one at a potluck and it was wonderful - and such a cool presentation.
I have a recipe at home for a stew made with chickpeas and pasta that is cooked inside a pumpkin. I made it a couple times and it is so good. I have to review the recipe, though, and it's at home. I will try to post it over the weekend.
Okay, here is a recipe that I adapted from The Ultimate Vegetarian Cookbook by Roz Denny-<br><br>
1 sliced onion<br>
1" cube ginger<br>
3 T Ex. Vir. Olive Oil<br>
1 sliced zucchini<br>
4 oz. sliced mushrooms<br>
1 14 oz can tomatoes<br>
2 c. cooked garbanzoa<br>
1 c. small pasta<br>
2 c. stock (I find that more is better)<br>
salt and pepper<br>
2 T chopped fresh basil<br><br>
Preheat oven to350. Cut off top of pumpkin and seed. (If you roast the seeds they are really good sprinkled on top of the stew). Cut as much flesh as you can from the inside of the pumpkin- leaving a thin outer wall. Chop flesh. Bake pumpkin with its lid on until it begins to soften. The recipe suggests 45 m. to 1 hour, but I think it happens faster. In a pan fry onion,ginger, pumpkin flesh in the olive oil for 10 minutes. Add zucchini and mushrooms and cook about 3 more min. Stir in tomatoes, pasta shells, garbanzos and stock (add more stock if you like it soupier). Bring to boil, then cover and simmer for 10 min. Stir in basil and put the mixture in the cooked shell. I put any extra filling in soup terrine. The recipe suggests putting in 1/4 c. ricotta with the basil, but I have tried it this way and I just don't like it- it gives a strange texture and detracts from the fresh veggies. You might want to try it. I think parmesan and roasted pumpkin seeds are much better sprinkled on the top! Also, it tastes good cooked inside the shell, but you have to skip the pasta or add it at the end.
So, I just stared a Thanksgiving recipes thread and realized I probably won't be able to eat much from it, since most of it won't be vegan. This will be my first vegan Thanksgiving, after many veggie ones, so I would love to have something to eat at my dad's. Normally I have some mashed potatoes and bread, but that won't even be an option this year. I would love some ideas of something I could bring that would wow em, or even just me.<br>
Erika's recipe looks delish, btw, that's a contender for sure.
